Tips for buying a wireless adapter

Are you in the market for a new computing or mobile device with a wireless adapter? The UITS ComputerGuide offers some tips:

  • In addition to the 802.11a/b/g protocols, the IU Secure wireless network supports the faster 802.11n protocol.
  • UITS recommends purchasing devices that support 802.11n in both 2.4 and 5 Ghz (dual band).
  • 802.11n adapters with 5 Ghz support will provide better service than devices that are only 2.4 Ghz capable.
